Haematology Service

The Eastern Health Clinical Haematology service is based at Box Hill Hospital. The Haematology unit comprises of 15 haematology consultants and of 5 clinical, laboratory and clinical trials trainees.

The Haematology service has inpatient including autologous blood stem cell transplant and outpatient care for all haematology malignant (acute and chronic leukemias, myeloma, lymphoma, myeloproliferative) and non-malignant (haemostasis thrombosis, aplastic anemia, transfusion related) blood diseases. It also leads the Victorian and Tasmanian Amyloidosis Service (VTAS) receiving state and interstate cases of amyloidoisis for consultation and treatment.

The Clinical Haematology unit has disease specific leads where all new cases are discussed at fortnightly or monthly MultiDiscplinary Meetings (MDMs).
